But you are only talking about states (people who know and people who
don't) we are not counting all of the people who exist in each state.
You would not be so caviler about wasting bits if you only had 4k or
8k to work with. ;-)
We have evolved so far from true binary that most programmers never
even get close to bits.

I used to have a Commodore-64 computer. I wrote a BASIC language
expansion (called BASIC PLUS) which really added a lot of stuff, but
still fit in 8KB ($8000 - $9FFF, either RAM or ROM cartridge).
Even well up into the S/360 days, it was common to only have an 8k
partition to run some very sophisticated business applications.
I had a mens clothing retailer that was running a credit card
authorization app with 6 operators and 2 batch partitions for regular
accounting and inventory jobs in addition to the OS in 24k and that
was in the 1970-72 timeframe.
